Knowing what to clean when is super confusing. In this post, I'm going to share what needs to be cleaned in March. I've also put together a free March cleaning schedule that you can print off and use to clean your home too.
I love lists and schedules. Since my mind is flying by a mile a minute I need lists and schedules to keep me going.
I'm one of those people that will find a dirty sock in the living room then go to put it away just to find myself an hour later, I'm in the garden shed reorganizing the gardening supplies.
That's why I need lists and schedules in my life. To keep me focused and on task.
Years ago, I got tired of my ways and created a year-long cleaning schedule for myself. I broke it into months and I work off it one month at a time.
Each month I share that month's cleaning schedule in a blog post hoping that it will help you with the cleaning.
Before I share the schedule with you I want to explain why I've done this.
There is a lot of cleaning and maintenance that needs to be done around the house. Not everything needs to be cleaned or maintained each day, week, or month either. There are tasks that are needed to be done four times a year, twice a year, and yearly.
By breaking those tasks up into schedules I'm able to make sure my house is being cleaned and maintained without forgetting things like replacing filters or washing baseboard (before a problem occurs or it's embarrassing).
I don't have a lot of time to devote to cleaning so I make sure that my cleaning schedule is as efficient and effective as possible.
Daily, weekly, and monthly
My daily, weekly, and monthly cleaning tasks don't change. The beds need to be made, laundry needs to be done, and the toilets need to be scrubbed. So I don't have to worry about that changing from month to month.
These are chores that only need to be taken care of 1,2,3, or 4 times a year. These are tasks that we mostly forget about. Things like replacing the HVAC filter. Sure that might not be pulling out the broom and mop but it needs to be replaced to maintain the heating and cooling in my home.
Cleaning light fixtures don't need to be washed each month and I used to never wash them. Until allergies became an issue in our home things like that didn't even cross my mind.
Now that I'm aware of things like that I make sure I schedule those chores.
I get overwhelmed and distracted easily...
So I wrote out a list of chores that need to be completed less than 12 times a year and added a few to each of my monthly cleaning schedules. This allowed me to not worry about if I was going to remember to clean something because each month I have a new list of month-specific chores.
